What our clients say about us
The service I received from Nick at Webcraft exceeded my expectations. Nick built a very professional website for less money and much quicker than I expected, and incorporated the tweaks I asked for and my other comments almost overnight.
Bruce Gailey (Gailey Law)
The website Webcraft designed and created for Leith Nautical has been a great success. Good looking and fully functional. Nick has been very supportive in his dealings with the digitally challenged: he has helped us make the right choices for our business. As Nick’s tag line says, “surfing made simple”. Thanks Nick
Paul (Leith Nautical)
We have been delighted with the service provided by Webcraft. Our previous home-made site was starting to look very amateurish, and we were keen for it to be given a complete makeover. Nick was really quick to appreciate the messages we wanted our site to project, and he also did a very quick and efficient job producing our new site.
David Hoult (Burnbank Cottage, Isle of Jura)
The website was designed and created for us within a week. We are very pleased with the end result and we’re delighted with the ease of use. Everything was sorted out over the phone and by email and Nick is always there to help us out if we have any queries.
Denise Boyne (Aberdeen Clutterbusters)
Simon Davies (The Barn self catering, Uist)
Just wanted to thank you for the website – the feedback I have had so far has been really good and although I realised you had registered a brilliant URL for me I was still amazed to see it come up as 2nd, 3rd and 4th in searches for horse massage in Scotland and variations on the theme. You were so quick to “get” what I wanted from the site and produce something which looks good and will appeal to the people I want to reach. I had some ideas of what I wanted when I contacted you. I was impressed by how quickly you grasped the concepts and the important points about the business, and how quickly you were able to mock up a starting point from our conversations and a few photos I sent you. Your understanding of promoting business on the web was also a real bonus.
Debbie Joy (Equine Massage Scotland)
Webcraft designed the website for my Bed and Breakfast in Ullapool. The service was very efficient and friendly and the website is of a very high standard. The layout of the page is very user friendly and easy to navigate round. The booking form is a particularly good feature as it allows everything to be done online, and the availability chart is great for guests as they can instantly see if we have room for them. We have made quite a few changes to prices/pictures etc and these changes are always done quickly and with no hassle. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a professional and functional website for their business.
Hannah Johnston (Point Cottage B&B, Ullapool)
Webcraft took over the hosting and management of our site at the beginning of 2006. Our search engine performance and web bookings improved dramatically almost immediately and have remained high. This year (2010) Nick completely redesigned the site for us, to critical acclaim. The service we receive from Webcraft has always been first class, with updates carried out quickly, excellent technical support and copious free advice.
Ray Norris (West Highland Sailing)
The service and attention to detail from Webcraft UK is second to none with prompt attention to any alterations to the site that we required due to slight change in circumstances. The site has certainly multiplied our business for a relatively small cost.
Paul Drew (The Tin Church)
5.0 out of 5 The website was designed and created for us in record time, and we’re delighted with both its appearance and its ease of use. We were given most useful start-up instruction, with helpful back-up assistance when necessary. Thank you Webcraft
Jenifer Smith (Easdale People)
This is the second website that Webcraft UK Ltd has designed for me. My first website has been so successful that I did not even consider approaching anyone else for a quotation for my new site. www.westboundadventures.co.uk is usually on page one of Google so I am hoping that my new site www.westboundcharters.co.uk will eventually be recognised by major search engines. I know this will take time but I am confident that Webcraft can do it. Features which are important for my business are ease of navigation throughout the site, stunning images, availability calendar managed by myself, and downloadable booking form for clients.
Paul McNeil (Westbound Charters)
To name just a few that come to mind:
- the absolute commitment to customer service
- the excellent ideas / suggestions regarding design
- (rare this) the level of integrity that informs all business behaviour – including disagreeing when it is felt appropriate (and in such a gentle way…)
- deep knowledge of the web and its various pitfalls and a passion to prevent clients falling into the traps that may not be so obvious initially
- a willingness to share that knowledge in a humourous and informative way – very much appreciated
- and finally, the sheer professionalism of the resulting web page ………….. its simplicity (anyone can do complex, it takes skill to do simple – seriously, I know this from my own work) ………….. its artistic merit ………….. its hidden ‘secret bits’ (technical term obviously) which enable the site to be easy on the eye and user friendly.
As you can tell, I would, and do, recommend Webcraft to others. In fact, on my ‘landing page’ I allude to the quality of the web page and Nick’s work. ‘Nuf sed…
Kevin Patch (Sledgehammer Simple)
I am (Jan 2010) reviewing the cottage web presence starting with our own website. We are very happy with it and last year the website accounted for 31% of bookings, and I am sure influenced the decision of many more who clicked on to it from other websites. The forward bookings for 2010 are the healthiest they have ever been at this point, not bad given the website was only live since May!
Chris & Helen Jackson (Stonehill Cottage)
David Johnston (Go Colonsay)
Just to say many thanks for your time, creativity and effort in putting our new website together. Your expertise, guidance and advice were greatly appreciated and your ability to translate our ‘ideas and vision’ on to a web page were invaluable. We are already receiving and generating enquiries via the website and feedback from our customers and clients has been extremely encouraging and complimentary. Our listing on Google has gone to No.1 for various key phrase searches, which is extraordinary given the site was only completed just over a month ago. You have provided a value-added service and we look forward to continuing our working relationship with Webcraft.

Aileen Binner (Home Start Lorn)
Connect NDT Limited is delighted with the cost effective service offered by Webcraft UK since our introduction in 2001. The design of the site and all the interface script for employee and client access behind the scenes would not have been possible without the technical knowhow offered by Nick Bowles and his team. Corporate web presence is an essential tool in client/customer confidence especially for the fledgling entrepreneur as perception is everything. Our company has been constantly evolving, taking advantage of international markets and Webcraft have kept up with our demands every step of the way.
Les Veitch (Connect NDT Ltd)
The look and feel of the new site is vastly superior to the home made site which it replaced. The re-launch of the site generated a lot of interest and several new orders, and since then it has produced a regular stream of enquiries. Thanks again for a very professional service at a very reasonable price.
David Ellis (Ellis Design Associates)
Our Webcraft designed web site has been a great success. We have quickly let our cottage from enquiries from the site alone. The site is user friendly and is readily updated by Webcraft when any changes need to be made. We have recommended Webcraft to others who are looking to set up a website .
Douglas Curley (The Haven)
We’ve found that the service provided by Webcraft in maintaining our website is prompt, personal and good value for money. We also like the fact that we consistently come near the top of the Google search engine listings – which is an important element of our marketing.
Kathy Ader (Northern Ecological Services)
The website designed by Webcraft is very good. I found the company very professional and efficient. They were creative in their approach and really took the time to designing the site to suit my needs. As a Visual Artist, this is critical. The layout is contemporary, stylish and easy to use. I also found it working very fast, no problems with displaying images/ photos.
Elaine Woo Macgregor (ElaineWooMacgregor.com)
We have been working with Nick for over two years now and the service can only be described as fantastic. The initial set up was hassle free and during the initial consultation Nick’s knowledge certainly expanded our expectations on what the site would deliver and the end result was superb. Any ongoing change requests have been dealt with quickly and efficiently: two years later the site continues to drive customers to our business
Jim Ellis (Holiday Seil)
Working with Nick allowed me to achieve what I thought was an impossibility – my own web site! I had a picture of this in my mind but no idea how to create this. Nick worked with me at my pace – he listened to what I wanted, presented me with some ideas, and artistic direction which resulted in a website that represents who I am and how I wish to conduct my business. People love it! I would highly recommend Webcraft and look forward working in partnership with them as my business evolves and the site evolves.
Anita Parker (Life Coaching and Performance Management, Aberdeen)
Overjoyed! The cost, the website development and the personal service have been brilliant. Webcraft and Nick in particular have provided us with a website that is unique in comparison with other sites. This has given us a direct link between our site and the people it represents, even down to its mood, if one can such a thing. The package received also allows us to maintain the site bringing relevance and up to date information to everyone who comes across us. Personally I’d be more than willing to recommend Webcraft to anyone, individual, charity or corporate business, we’re more than happy as you’ll have gathered!
Stuart Davidson (St. Marks Parish Church, Stirling)
Five years ago Webcraft set up my underwater photography website and since then the number of people hitting this site has been phenomenal, which in turn has put my name on the photography map. The system allows me complete control over the content of my Gallery, and any occasional problems or requests for support have been dealt with rapidly and professionally.
Dick Cook (Wetfoot)
I have been working with Nick for ten years now. Webcraft UK have created web sites for a variety of enterprises in that time, and all of them have proved a very cost-effective way of attracting new business and providing customers with information. Requests for additions and new features are actioned promptly and communication is very good. It is almost like having your own in-house web design department.
Jon Peck (Wheeliebox)
Nick designed my website for me and since I have had it I have received a lot of interest, not only for people wanting their dogs walked but also people asking to come work for me. It has really made a difference to my business. He made sure it was right at the top of Google when you search for dog walkers in Aberdeen. If I ever have a problem with my website he is always quick to help me and solve any issues i have. Highly recommended!!
Laura Smith (PAWS Dog Walking)
Webcraft have provided us with a personal and highly professional service in the design of our new website for our holiday cottage. Nick Bowles not only has the technical skills which we were looking for, but also a real flair for creating a visually attractive, easily navigated website. He also set up a new e mail address linked to the site, and helped us in dealing with the complexities of working with a variety of ISPs. All in all, we’re delighted with the service which we have received.
Martin and Myra Waddell (9, Kilbrandon Cottages)
My site was created never even having met the man (I still haven’t), and business was conducted remotely via e-mail and by telephone. He has considerable patience, and never failed to carry out my wishes resulting in a site exactly in accordance with my wishes and expectations. Needless to say the budget we had agreed upon was met, and the live product was delivered on time.
